The Nationals have been in cruise control for the majority of 2017 and despite some key injuries have maintained a sizeable lead in the National League East. "I hope he's alright", Jones said.
Manager Dusty Baker spoke this week about the importance of new players fitting well into the Washington Nationals' clubhouse in the middle of the season. Given injuries to Harper, Stephen Strasburg - who has a rehab assignment Monday - and others, the Nationals' focus is getting healthy for the playoffs. He had five by the end of the third inning Sunday.
Virginia was in the news Saturday for the racial unrest that took place. Additionally, catcher Pedro Severino was added to the Nationals' roster from Triple-A Syracuse as the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader vs. the San Francisco Giants. "He kept us in the game there", Bochy said.
With Harper out, the Nationals got their offense in the form of RBI doubles from Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Lind, and an RBI single from Daniel Murphy off Giants starter Jeff Samardzjia (7-12). He retired 10 straight hitters after he gave up a two-run home run to Alex Avila that put the Cubs up 4-1 in the first inning. Harper had hit a ground ball to the right side and first baseman Ryder Jones made a lunging stop before racing to the bag.

The ex-dividend date of this dividend is Thurs, Sep 14th. this indicates a $0.70 dividend on a yearly basis and a payout of 3.55%. Citadel Advisors LLC added to its ownership by buying 1,034,731 shares an increase of 290.2% from 03/31/2017 to 06/30/2017.
Harper's loss will be felt by a team that is on pace to win 97 games yet will enter October as nobody's favorite because of the historic dominance that has happened at Dodger Stadium this season.
It was easy to assume that Harper was gone for the season, and it was just as easy to start worry about when he would be back in 2018.
The start of the game was delayed three hours, one minute by rain Saturday and there was a light rain in the first inning. The 2015 NL MVP is 10-for-28 with two homers, seven RBIs and six runs scored in his last seven contests, but went 0-for-8 with four strikeouts during Washington's three-game sweep of San Francisco.
There's a good chance Baker passes Bochy in this series. "I'm very optimistic that he'll be at least fine shortly", Baker said.
